>> reporter: good morning. i spoke with the manager who arrived on scene about 10 minutes ago. he is being debriefed with the fire department in the back right now. he doesn't know what happened exactly in the situation but he did say that in the past this location has had problems with people stealing fuel from these trucks. if you have rented a u-haul truck they are returned with a full tank of gas. another problem this morning was a propane tank about 10 feet tall that sits in the back lot. the concern was to get the fire under control before it headed towards that tank. so as a precaution, a row of apartments behind the lot were evacuated. we are told the residents have been let back in. right now police have located -- blocked off the area as the arson investigators continue checking out what may have caused the fire. we know that the fire broke out around 11:57 a.m. it was a two-alarm fire. 7 u-haul trucks were completely destroyed by the fire. another had some minor injuries, minor damage. investigators say that 8 trucks
6:01am
were completely empty so they are puzzled now what may have caused the problem. but there was a problem this morning in trying to get the hose out pack here which caused problems for firefighters. >> when we arrived, the first crews on scene found about 8 u- hauls burning to the rear lot of the business. it was a bit of a logistical challenge. the hose length to get in there was quite long. >> reporter: right now, the u- haul manager is meeting with the fire department and mountain view police department to help them answer questions and figure out what may be going on back here. we do know that later on they are bringing in dogs to sniff out for some accelerant and continue the investigation this morning. >> thank you anser hassan. tempers flare on the streets of san francisco. protestors unhappy with the police killing of a teenaged convict turned to vandalism and
